The Lady Captain's Day was held on Wednesday in sunny but, once again, very blustery conditions. The winner of the Silver Division was Sandra Walker (13) and Glenda Board (18) won the longest drive on the 13 hole.

In the Bronze Division the winner was Hazel Williamson (23) from Pauline Standerwick (32) on the back nine ruling both on 29 points, and Hazel was the also the winner of the Captain's Bowl. Third place went to Michelle Bowers (21) 27pts, fourth place to Alison Cook and fifth to Marion Beranck.

The longest drive in the Bronze division went to Helen Gaudie, on the 10th hole, best front nine went to Maureen Broomfield and back nine to Margaret Brown.

The lady Captain and her husband David provided a magnificent barbecue and salads for the ladies after the competition.

lIn the Seniors' Section the July Medal produced some excellent scores with six players equalling or beating par.

The eventual winner, two strokes clear, was David Field (22) with a 66 nett.

Second, with a 68 nett, was Keith Wilson (12) while another consistent performer, John Pugh (16), was third with 69.

In a topsy turvy year, with some fine away wins, the team had to accept a humbling defeat at Sidmouth on Thursday by 51/2. to 1/2. The half point for Axe Cliff was won by Rob Grove and Morrison Brown and the team can now look forward to reversing this result when Sidmouth visit Axe Cliff in late September.

On Monday the annual match with Ashley Wood was played, this time at Blandford, and resulted in the narrowest win for the home club by 31/2. to 21/2.

Winning pairings for Axe Cliff were David Field/Mike Jamieson and John/Rob Pugh while the organiser of the event, Peter Jakes, a member of both clubs, gained the half point in partnership with Malcolm Glass.
